If you're anything like me, at some point you've thought that being the person in charge of naming paint colors would be a cool job. But even before that, someone's got to pick the actual colors. Ever wonder how that works? We talked to Dee Schlotter, Senior Color Marketing Manager at PPG, to learn more about the process.
The PPG team—representing brands including PPG Paints, Glidden Paints, and Olympic Paints and Stains—recently met in New York City to talk about color trends for 2019. "This is the ninth year we've gotten together to create a color forecast," Schlotter says. The color experts come from North America, Asia, and Europe, and include pros who focus on different areas like appliances, aerospace, and more. The annual in-person meetup allows them to share information on what's new across industries all over the world.
